Summary: An end of an era, a beginning of another.


Harry grips Severus’ hand tightly.

First joyous newborn cry, first smile, first awkward crawl across the sitting room.

First gleeful “daddy!”, first hug, and first scraped knee.

All yesterdays now, in the blink of an eye.

They stand as silent sentries, waving good-bye together, as their son takes his first step away from them into a brave, new world.

“He’ll be home tonight, Severus, it’s only the first day of school.” Harry brushes away the first tear he has ever seen his husband shed.

“I know. But I can’t help feeling like it’s an end.”

Harry smiles. “Or a beginning.”

Severus Snape had always known he was not the most attractive man. It had never bothered him before.

He had always been able to ignore the giggling hordes. One scathing glare, and the cowards had turned tail and run.

He’d thought Harry oblivious to it all. Until, during an argument, Harry had retorted - “You keep pushing me, Severus, and I’ll go find a wizard twice as handsome and half your age!”

The boy had apologized, but the damage was done.

Snape hadn’t noticed the grey hairs and fine wrinkles before. Now, he wondered how he had ever missed them.

Crack! The egg landed in the pan.

Harry carefully stirred, adding mushrooms, chopped onions, and cheese. He adjusted the flame on the element, wiggled the edge of his spatula under the browned edge, and held his breath.

“SonofaBITCH!” Loud cursing could be heard, before Harry appeared out of the kitchen and slammed the plate down.

“What’s this?” Snape stared at the scrambled mess on his plate.

“It’s an omelette,” Harry bit out.

“I told you, Harry, it’s all in the gentle flick of the wrist.”

“Shut UP!” Harry cuffed Severus hard on the back of the head, and stomped away.

Every morning long black strands of hair lay on the bathroom floor, in the shower drain, on his husband’s pillow. Harry gathered them up carefully, placing them in the small mahogany chest, keeping the precious hair to be made into a wig when the time came.

The medi-wizards were resorting to Muggle remedies, the potions rendered ineffective years ago.

Harry tried not to let his grief show in his eyes as he met Severus’ gaze in the mirror. “You’re beautiful to me, Severus.”

“Even bald?”

Harry gently lay a kiss on the bare spot at the crown. “Yes, even then.”

“Severus, what’s in here? It weighs a tonne! There is a baggage limit on the plane.”

“It weighs exactly five pounds three ounces, and it’s my standard kit of potions.” Snape looked indignant.

"But you practically sleep with that damned bag under your pillow. It's like your sodding binkie.”

Snape snatched the bag back. “What would you have me leave? The blood replenishing potion? The Skele-gro? The Veritaserum?”

“We’re going to Disneyland, not a war zone!” Harry laughed.

“So?” Snape raised a brow. “Your point being?”

Harry paused, reconsidering. “Actually, you’re right. I think I need my Auror’s field kit.”

Snape had gotten used to the routine. Check the wards a dozen times exactly. Snape didn’t even have to count; his hands had memorized the movements.

The standard reassurances rolled off his tongue easily; “There’s no one behind you, Harry,”, “Your wand is working fine,” and “Yes, I’m sure the Dark Lord is dead.”

Snape tried not to stare as Harry developed a nervous tic that made him squint and rub his eyes constantly, his head flicking backwards as if he’d developed seizures.

Each night, Snape secretly slipped the potions into the tea. At least Harry’s nights were peaceful.

Severus narrowed his eyes in concentration.

Plunk.

The green ball bounced and rolled back.

Severus huffed once, and swung again.

Plunk

The wooden blade continued on its arc.

Severus watched as the ball dribbled back, stopping between his feet. He closed his eyes, counted to ten, and swung.

Plunk

“That is IT!” he roared. “That cursed windmill is MOCKING ME!!” Severus pulled his wand out and blasted the obstacle to smithereens. A young boy nearby looked stunned, before bursting into tears.

Harry sighed, exasperated, and gently pried the putter out of his husband’s hands. Clearly, minigolf wasn’t Severus’ game either.

Thwock!

Severus craned his head.

Splash!

“Damn it.”

Thwock!...

…Splash!


“Merlin’s balls!” A vein ticked visibly on one temple.

Harry rolled his eyes. “For heaven’s sake Severus, why won’t you just take the penalty and be done with it?” He backed off, holding his hands up as Severus whipped around, glaring.

“It is,” Severus bit out, “the principle of the thing. I refuse to take the easy way out.” He turned, eyeing the target again.

Thwock!...

“See, Harry, I told you I could get it…”

Splash!

“For Circe’s sake!” Severus face turned puce, and he stomped off down the green fairway.

“Next!” the receptionist called out.

The expectant couple approached, the pregnant lady waddling…the receptionist blinked. Or was it a lady? Shrugging, she asked for the health card.

“What in Merlin’s name is that?” The tall, dark (and rather scary, the receptionist admitted to herself) man hissed under his breath.

“Shush, Severus. I’ll take care of it.” The dark haired woman fished around in her purse, handing over the card.

“Harrietta Potter-Snape.” The receptionist jotted the information down. “Very well, the ultrasound technician is waiting for you in Room Three.”

“Thank you,” Harrietta smiled.

The receptionist gawked as they walked away.

“Bartender! Where’s my refill?” Severus slammed his fist hard against the bar’s surface.

“Coming sir – here you go. Difficulties with the misses?”

Severus wiped his mouth with the back of his sleeve, muttering about immature brats and hardheaded Gryffindors.

“Haven’t I seen you here before?”

“No. First time here. Don’t you have tables to clear?” Black eyes squinted at him balefully.

A young Auror approached the bar. “Severus, I’m sorry. I know you worry, but it’s just my job. Come, let’s go home.”

The bartender looked after the bickering pair, smiling as he leaned over to wipe down the counter.

“Gimme ‘nother.” Harry’s speech was slurred.

“No, sir. I think you’ve had quite enough. Lover’s spat?” He wiped out another glass with his towel.

“Something like that.” Harry yawned widely, staring morosely down. “He’s such a stubborn jerk.”

“I’m sure he’s probably at home, worried sick about you.” There was a chink as the stein tapped another on the shelf.

“Severuss? Never…he’s not the type to wait.” Harry heaved a forlorn sigh.

“Harry – where have you been?”

“Hi Severuss…missed you.” Harry teetered off the barstool into his husband’s arms.

“Take him home sir. I think he’s done for the night.”

“Oh shit! The toast is burning!” Harry made a mad dash towards the Muggle appliance, trying to pull out the black slices. “Severus, I told you to put it on the lowest setting. I suppose it could be worse.”

“How in the name of Merlin could it be worse?” Snape retorted, waving at the billowing black smoke. “This is the last time I let you talk me into ‘expanding my horizons’.”

“It could have set off the sprinkler system too.”

Suddenly, with a snick, the spigots released. Torrents of water cascaded down, drenching both men.

“Oops. I guess it’s worse.”
